EJ Holden Pinion Angle

I suspect my pinion angle might be a bit out,get a lot of vibration and gear jump out only going uphill. Thinking of trying some wedges at the back. Where can you buy wedges suitable for old Holdens, are they pretty universal?

Powerglide transmission

Is the stator tube on a powerglide box different between the 6 cylinder and v8 boxes? Are they a different length and can I put a bellhousing to suit a v8 with a different convertor? I realise the gear ratios are different and a turbo spline input shaft is recommended for higher horsepower but will this work? Thanks for any info.

Supra W58 into EH

I am currently in the process of fitting a W58 5 speed Supra box into my EH sedan with 202 red. I am after a slip yoke for the gearbox end of the tailshaft. I have seen on the internet (Dellows) that there are a couple of different types for holdens one is for V8/V6/6 cyl red 1 tonner and the other for holden 6 red/blue/black etc. I am a little confused as I have the V8 one and it fits into the box and onto tailshaft no problem. Can anybody tell what the difference is between the two types and can I use the V8 one ??

Thanks

173, 3 speed manual to 253, 3 speed. What needs to change ???

Hi Guys,

I want to swap the engine in my HJ ute from a 173 to a 253, but keep the 3 speed coloumn shift manual.
I want to keep it all as original as possible so don't want to move crossmembers etc.
What needs to change (driveline wise) ?
I was told that there is a V8 "version" of the gearbox and then everything else will marry up.

Does that sound right ?

Thanks,
Pete

Advice needed on diff rebuild places

Looking for wisdom from past experiences on best place to get my diff rebuilt.
Pretty sure it is a 3.08 10 bolt salisbury in my 253 hj premier wagon. I get a regular knocking sound, not really a whine. Been going on for over a year or so now, but im now worried it will suddenly fail.

Any advice welcome.
I am in Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
